Abstract : The research efforts involved theoretical, computational, and experimental research in the general area of control of structures and nonlinear flow/structure interactions. The work, pursued in an integrated, multidisciplinary approach, involved basic research on modeling, identification, control, and computation in (1) flow control; (2) smart material structures; (3) control of nonlinear fluid structure interaction models; (4) fluid flow in a vertical chemical vapor deposition reactor; (5) pharmacokinetics dynamics and (6) computational electromagnetics. Major achievements include the development, implementation and experimental validation of (a) feedback control algorithms for use in vibration suppression in smart structure active noise suppression and (b) noninvasive damage detection algorithms based on routine structural vibration responses.
